Like its sister ships, the Warlock is quite capable of filling
the role of an interceptor or an escort. However, the
Warlock's main purpose is to eliminate small patrol/scout
warships. It also able to attack land based fortifications.
The Warlock bears the
same low velocity drive within the fuselage as its predecessors.
In appearance, the Grav'generators
are more akin to those of the Warmancer and the Darkstar.
The external portion of the Warlock's Grav'generators,
however, have been lowered. This was done to prevent undo
interference with the drive assemblies. Based on prototype
tests, such an event would be quite spectacular; not to mention
The power output of the main propulsion drive system
has been increased without greatly increasing the energy depend
of the system. Like the Starmage,
the Warlock bears four exhaust ports (for lack of a better
phrase) without any vectoring fins.
Unlike its predecessors, the Warlock
has fewer energy weapons and more ballistic type weaponry.
The energy weapons consist of two very high powered plasma
cannons located in the weapon pods. Along the fuselage are
two pairs of medium grade lasers.
The Warlock's other armaments
include missile ports located on the dorsal and ventral sides of the weapons pods.
Two large missiles/torpedoes are also part of the load out.
